        China Airlines (Taiwan) 737-800 lands in Okinawa, passengers rush for
        exits as smoke fills cabin, plane explodes.  Safety officials suspect
        fuel leak near engine.
        \_ China Airlines one of the worst:
           http://www.planecrashinfo.com/cause.htm
           Their entire lines killed over 1000 passengers and crews, in
           1970, 1971, 1980, 1982, 1986, 1989, 1994, 1998, 1999, and 2002.
           I esp. remember the horrific 1994/4/26 crash near my dad's
           residence. No wonder everyone's flying EVA these days.
        \_ Fatal events per million flights for each airline:
           http://www.airsafe.com/airline.htm
           Only AeroPeru, Air Zimbabwe, Cubana, EgyptAir and Royal Jordanian
           have worse records than China Airlines.

8/20    Anyone was hurt by Schwab on 8/16 because you couldn't sell your stock
        in time?  Was there any plan for compensation?
        \_ Suck it up.
           \_ There's this subtle statement in an e-mail I got from Schwab
              regarding the 8/16 event:
              "If you had difficulty accessing your account that you would
              like to discuss with a Schwab representative, please call
              1-800-577-5722."

8/20    Go fuck yourself emarkp. Feel free to censor this.
        \_ ??? -emarkp
           \_ "???" ? You didn't censor my messages?
              \_ I have no idea who you are or what your messages were. -emarkp
        \_ Hey, it's paranoid nutcase guy again!
        \_ Wait, the above is still here, but emarkp's post is gone.  Is
           emarkp now censoring his own posts?
           \_ Apparently, according to this anonymous troll, all edits are
              mine. Hey troll, I leave my editor running all the time, so the
              various scripts to ID motd editors commonly report me as a false
              positive.  Go back to your cage. -emarkp
              \_ Ok fine. If you didn't delete my posts, WHO DID?    -op
                 \_ I don't know Mr. Anonymous Troll.  You haven't even said
                    which post was yours. -emarkp

        \_ I met Dick Cheney in 2004 when he gave a speech at my work. He
           came across as very articulate, experienced, and a natural born
           leader. So if you feel he has changed in some way then it must
           have happened since 2004.
           \_ So we both agree he was smart at some point.  What the hell

8/20    motd munged.  please add back entries.
        \_ I've only been sporadically manually checking in the current
           /etc/motd.public into my rcs archive.  I haven't updated my
           automated scripts to deal with the change.  Anyoen know if this
           sorry state of affairs is going to last long enough to warrant
           me fixing my process to deal with the borken motd updater? -ERic
           \_ Assuming this would be a 'yes', I have already fixed my scripts.

        'I've Been Everywhere." Perhaps we can fill in some names
        of the places that Ed Jew's lived... "Ed's lived everywhere,
        man, Ed's lived everywhere." "Burlingame, Notre Dame,
        Flower Store, Singapore Arizona, Minnesota,

8/20    How did Dan White get away with only serving 5 years for
        killing two people?  Nowadays you get 20 years just for
        carrying crack.
        \_ Who?
         \_ Oh, that Dan White.  Because it was 1978?  Because back then
            whole lock em up and throw away the key movement was just getting
            started?  Because his jury probably pretty damn homophobic because
            let's face it it was 1978, and even SF wasn't gay paradise.
            Because after the verdict there were minor riots and the police
            retaliated by beating up patrons at a gay bar?  30 years are a
            long fucking time.
        \_ Umm, 'cause he's WHITE?
